Hurricane Florence takes aim at Southeast

Hurricane Florence churns through the Atlantic Ocean toward the U.S. East Coast on Sept. 12

"Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".

Landfall is expected late Thursday or early Friday, and the National Hurricane Center fears the storm "will slow considerably or stall, leading to a prolonged and exceptionally heavy and unsafe rainfall event Friday-Sunday". "It's a big one". In contrast to the hurricane center's official track, a highly regarded European model had the storm turning southward off the North Carolina coast and coming ashore near the Georgia-South Carolina line.

President Donald Trump is urging those in the path of Hurricane Florence to act now to "get out of its way". Their mission will likely last for at least 10 days, according to Pete Piringer, a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire. "It's going to destroy homes", said Jeff Byard, an official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In North Carolina, Cooper says, "2,800 soldiers will be on active duty, joined by even more on standby".

The storm is expected to stall once it makes landfall in the Carolinas, and if does, restoration efforts can not begin until it passes and in some cases until flood waters recede.

President Donald Trump declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, opening the way for federal aid.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com calculates that Florence could dump about 18 trillion gallons of rain in seven days over the Carolinas and Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland. Those areas are expected to experience tropical storm conditions and rainfall amount of up to 8 inches, and Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands facing possible isolated amounts on 4 inches.

Mr Graham said the Pamlico and Neuse rivers in North Carolina will see their flows "reversed" as storm surges push water back inland.

Cardinal Wuerl to discuss possible resignation with Pope Francis
The Vatican has known since at least 2000 that McCarrick would invite seminarians to his New Jersey beach house and into his bed. Wuerl has also been embroiled in the allegations of molestation leveled at former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

Panovich said the lingering rain will bring back memories of May's flooding in the foothills and mountains, where most of the western half of North Carolina was under a flood watch or warning for almost a week.

Col. Glenn McNeill with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said troopers are on standby statewide to assist where needed.

An additional 25 percent of deaths are related to rain, he said. We know how to manage expectations.

Winds shouldn't be much of a factor, and as Panovich said, we shouldn't focus too much on the wind impacts.

As the day progresses we'll see partly cloudy skies with a slight chance for a shower or storm.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite used its lightning mapping technology for a video showing Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene as they traveled across the Atlantic on Tuesday. It's a horrifying spectacle to behold, and the hurricane hasn't even struck land yet. Forecasters also were tracking two other disturbances.
